Redemption by Kelly Moran - Book Review and Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Olivia and Justin were close. They lost their parents at a young age and they were both siblings and best friends. Olivia is heartbroken because she lost the person she loved most in the world. Unfortunately Justin died when he was on an army mission. He has a last message for his sister and that's being delivered by Nate, his best friend in the army. Nate's a giant of a man and he looks tough, but he has a good heart. Justin has a last wish, he wants Olivia to take care of Nate. He doesn't have anyone now that Justin is dead and Justin hopes Olivia will look after him. She offers him a job and a room at the family farm, trusting Justin's instincts completely.

Nate promised Justin he'd take care of Olivia. That's why he traveled to the ranch. He will keep his promise and will always look after his best friend's sister. When Nate is being welcomed with open arms by everyone on the farm he's feeling overwhelmed. He isn't used to warmth and affection and he doesn't think he deserves it. Guilt is eating away at him and he doesn't know what to do with himself because of it. Olivia slowly breaks down every wall he's ever built around himself. Is Nate ready for this persistent woman and will he give himself a chance to belong somewhere for the first time in his life?

Redemption is a beautiful romantic story. I absolutely loved Nate. He's big and strong, he has plenty of muscles, his body is covered in tattoos and his bald head gives him a tough look, but he's incredibly vulnerable underneath. He's chivalrous, kind and caring and he has no idea how wonderful he is. Olivia sees right through him and knows exactly what kind of man she's dealing with. She knows what she's doing when it comes to making others feel better and with her love, determination and willpower she manages to heal a lot of Nate's emotional wounds. They click on many different levels. I loved their deep and meaningful talks, their fun flirting and their amazing sizzling chemistry that almost ignites the pages.

Kelly Moran has a fantastic way to express feelings. She peels them off and layer by layer explores every single element. She knows every step of each reaction and that shows. She skillfully describes exactly what's going on in her main characters' hearts and minds. For me that makes her stories incredibly special. The love she writes about is all consuming, it's overwhelming, mesmerizing and terrifying, it's the most gorgeous feeling there is and her main characters have to find the bravery inside themselves to let it in. She describes this process in an original and creative way in each story she writes. Every time the love she writes about is different and each book blows me away. I highly recommend Redemption, it's a brilliant love story that completely melted my heart.


If you love beautiful emotional romance, you don't want to miss Redemption.
